Ampelmann, developer of motion compensated access solutions
, has reported a contract with Acta Marine for its newbuild wind farm support vessel, the Acta Orion.
Ampelmann’s motion compensated gangway will provide Acta Orion with a stable platform in sea states of up to 2.5m Hs to ensure safe, efficient and reliable transfers of personnel to and from the wind turbines.
In addition, Ampelmann, in close collaboration with Acta Marine, has developed a fully motion compensated cargo solution to enable the transfer of cargo and equipment weighing up to 300 KG to the wind turbine without the need for a crane.
The Acta Orion will initially work as service vessel to the offshore wind industry with the first project being the construction of the Gemini Offshore Wind Park 55km north of the Dutch island of Schiermonnikoog.
